Lebanese Twitter users Wednesday had some fun as they tweeted about what they would do if they became the president, with views ranging from the political to the humorous to the outright racist.If the evidence being tweeted out of country was anything to go by, then there is no better window into finding out what the Lebanese want to happen in their country than giving them the opportunity to play president. The Twitter trend #If_they_make_me_president went viral Wednesday afternoon, with different people using the hashtag for discrepant purposes. Another user said she would "eliminate sectarianism and dissolve the Parliament ... to let the people elect their own president and Parliament on the basis of merit".However, others chose to vent their anger against Lebanese politicians, both sarcastically and seriously.
